    We visited Whitewater restaurant for my son's 19th birthday as the menu has a great seafood selection and is an excellent location. In current times we were a little concerned re social isolation and so on but decided to keep the booking to support small local business. Whilst the food was good and initially the service ok- we had to ask at least 3 times for different things (drinks, wine, dessert menu, cutlery etc). There were only 4 tables occupied- and 3 waitstaff- we actually were made to feel like somewhat of an inconvenience rather that the few customers who were still prepared to eat out (whilst also being very careful about our hygiene). It was also a little concerning that the salt on the table was a communal "pinch pot" rather than an enclosed container? When times are different we still would not visit this restaurant again.

    Excellent food, service a bit slow and not as welcoming as other places on Manly. Views were spectacular and the drinks were good and plenty. I would recommend this place for views and food, but not for service

    Service was disappointing and food was mediocre. A great pity considering the location and view. There was little attention paid to service and not much coherence between staff.

    Extremely disappointing. I can only assume that on weekdays the restaurant is run from next door Bluewater. I ate here on Xmas day- immaculate service, professional service, excellent food. I’ve been here on weekends for dinner, always superb. On this basis I took business colleagues on a Wednesday and came away thoroughly embarrassed. Two staff, no tap beer, a limited menu and what was allegedly Barramundi came with a wire basket of cold chips. No offer of wine or dessert. Really, really disappointing

    Service was slow and without consideration, Oysters had not been chilled and although the quality was good served at room temperature, white wine was placed on the table without an ice bucket and one meal had obviously been cooked first and put to one side so was not hot when served to table! The table had not been cleaned properly and catching the attention of assistance was difficult.

    The Chateaubriand main was good and the Desert Platter was great. Service was somewhat unattentive though. A musician played until 8:30pm which was good. We had a good night overall.

    One of the few restaurants in Manly to open on Monday evening. Pleasant staff. Views across road to beach. Only complaint - we were given both the lunch and dinner menu in one which made it very obviously that exactly the same food was priced at least 25% different.

    Food was expensive and quite average. Restaurant had a nice vibe and the wait service was good.

    It was very busy and the staff forgot to give us water and required cutlery for our entree. They also hadn't cleared entree plates before our mains arrived. Food was good so not really too big of a deal. We will be back.

    My sister and I both had a Poke Bowl. It was inedible. It looked liked someone threw up black rice on the plate. I literally couldn’t find the salmon. The two avocado slices were too hard to bite. Take it off the menu.

    Generous portions, our steaks and beef ribs were cooked perfectly. Wine was great also. Thank you for a lovely night!

    Restaurant looks nice but not busy. We were not impressed by the food, maybe that’s why it’s so quiet in there.

    It was Fathers' day so busy. However we were not offered desert, and the pasta was well overcooked. Service should have been better, as it has been quite good on several prior visits.

    Great restaurant with a lovely ambience. The live guitarist was great and he had an amazing voice. The happy hour drinks are a great benefit, and the meals and service were flawless. Will definitely be back!

About the restaurant


Situated just a stones throw away from Manly's glittering foreshore is Whitewater Restaurant. It's location is enhanced by the beach-chic decor, amped up by white leather furnishings, lime-washed maple floors and a dramatic sharkskin leather bar front. Glorious decor aside, Whitewater offers plenty of reasons to come in off the sand, courtesy of Head Chef Luke Cesare’s Modern Australian menu. Cesare has cleverly anticipated diners inevitable desire for seafood with oysters, sashimi and a weighty platter of chilled shellfish and crustaceans on offer. The rest of the menu reflects Australia’s multicultural palate, with Mediterranean flavours and Asian-inspired dishes making an appearance. After your decadent meal take a stroll along the Manly foreshore and plan your next trip to Whitewater - trust us you'll be back.

Best Dish: seafood tasting plate.
